Goodmorning Richard.

Thank you for the link! 
I was having some second thoughts yesterday about how to proceed with my
annotator and I would like to share them with you.

First of all what I need to do is match a recognised text with a table of a
database containing names. So for example if we have a recognition " My name is
Nick" I want my annotator to compare the recognised text with the database and
try to find a match. Now lets say that "Nick" exists in the database so we have
a match then the annotator will return a name annotation. This annotator will be
used as UIMA pipeline early stage.

My problem is on how to create it. Using a dictionary annotator, or by just
using a general annotatator with some regex that will just scan the database?

Is it possible for the dictionary annotator to scan a table of a database like
it was a dictionary?

Thank you both for your answers.

With regards,
